Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld dismisses 'Me Too' movement

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld dismisses 'Me Too' movement

Its unbelievable. If you don't want your trousers pulled about, don't become a model!

Celebrity fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has slammed the #MeToo movement, saying he is "fed up" with it. Lagerfeld retorted. "Join a nunnery, there'll always be a place for you in the convent".

Karl Lagerfeld sat down for a spirited interview with fashion magazine, Numero, on Friday and though he may be upwards of 84, insane as a cut snake and in possession of the finest toupee this side of John Travolta, the designer did not disappoint.

I was most shocked starlet that took 20 years to remember what happened.

In a candid interview with Numero magazine, the bristly designer, bluntly said that he is "fed up" with the #MeToo movement.

But anger over what many see as the U.K.'s shabby treatment of residents of Caribbean origin eclipsed trade topics. The prime minister's spokesman insisted that "no-one with the right to be here will be made to leave".

Lagerfeld is defending the designers who have been accused of sexual misconduct without naming names, and admits he feels awful for Interview magazine creative director Karl Templar, who has been accused of trying to pull a model's trousers down during a photoshoot.

His comments come after several men in the fashion industry have been accused of inappropriate behavior, including famed photographer Terry Richardson being accused of rape and assault. Again, no witnesses. All these accusations of harassment have become quite harmful... He also jumped to the defense of ousted creative director Karl Templar, who faced misconduct allegations of his own in February.

Despite the prominence of the movement both in and out of fashion, Lagerfeld said that both the #MeToo and #TimesUp have "absolutely not" affected the way he approaches his work. From this point on as the designer, you can do nothing, - said creative Director of Chanel.

Despite his criticism of the current climate, Lagerfeld says he "cannot stand" disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein whose accusers led the charge of the Time's Up movement. "I had a problem with him at amfAR", he said.
